Re: [livesupport-dev] How are you doing?
  • Greetings All,

    I am a graduate student at Southern Connecticut State University. We
    have a low power AM broadcast and currently are using a functional
    alternative to dead air. It is however DOS protected mode based, and
    frankly as user friendly as the average piranha.

    Everyone would like to move away from it and get a more functional
    modern day live-assist/automation system going. We currently have a
    server that is probably powerful beyond the most demanding needs of
    livesupport setup and it's running Debian GNU/Linux Testing.
    (currently a large storage area/encoding machine that is the first
    step in our streaming audio setup...)

    I would be very interested in working with livesupport, even in
    alpha/beta form. I have access to a number of machines that I can
    just wipe and use for testing purposes. I would be willing to post
    bug reports and possibly even post patches as well.

    I have good skills with PHP and MySQL (yes, I know livesupport uses
    PgSQL, but I am willing to learn) If necessary I probably can work
    with C although I'm not fresh since my CS undergrad is almost 2 years

    Let me know if there is anything I could do to help.

    Thomas Dorr
